Open Post- The Enthronement of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako of Japan

Emperor Naruhito of Japan is being Enthroned in a series of lavish Ceremonies in Tokyo this week, with a multitude of Royal Guests from around the world in what promises to be the most glittering royal occasion of the year. Emperor Naruhito acceded to the Chrysanthemum Thone in May after the abdication of Emperor Akihito the previous day. In keeping with the importance of this event, I have decided to create an open post with all the details, links and livestreams from the event, along with live updates, which will keep all of you involved in the time before I post individual, detailed articles about each and every event!

This page will updated live throughout the two days, so be sure to return regularly!
